David S Sneid MD
My health symptoms were life-threatening and my general Dr sent me to the hospital. I was in the hospital for 3 days, was tested and examined by several doctors. They got the symptoms out of danger, but couldn't determine the root cause. They said some things were way too high, others way too low, and I needed to see 'a specialist'. They didn't even say what kind of specialist. My general Dr sent me to Dr. Sneid. Dr. Sneid diagnosed the core cause of all my symptoms on my first visit, determined which treatment was appropriate on my second visit, and this core illness was resolved on my third visit. In the following months, all of the other illness symptoms diminished. This happened about twenty years ago. Without Dr Sneid, I would probably still be visiting doctors A, B, C, and D treating symptoms 1 thru 10 (maybe the reason they couldn't figure it out was because there were so many symptoms). But with Dr. Sneid, the core illness was quickly resolved and I'm happy, healthy, and very thankful. I wouldn't think of recommending any friend or family in the Midwest needing an endocrinologist to see anyone besides Dr. Sneid. In my experience, in our first visit he figured out what two other groups of doctors couldn't. So, if you want, or need, one of, if not the most knowledgeable, efficient, and effective endocrinologists in the KC metro, Dr Sneid is most likely who you're looking for.

My family (including my toddler) have been seeing Dr. Walker and we are extremely happy with his care. We find Dr. Walker knowledgeable, reasonable and cautious in dispensing medication, and keen on diagnosing. He is also very personable and he has never rushed us when we needed to discuss our ailment and treatment options. Whenever we call his office with questions, the nurses and office staff are efficient in returning our calls. I once got a return call (after hours) from Dr. Walker within a minute! When I delivered my son, Dr. Walker visited me three times in the hospital either to check up on me or to discuss my son's care. Because it is a family clinic (and not a pediatric office), we occasionally have difficulty making a last minute appointment for our son, but his office has a great Nurse Practitioner, Kathleen Mallett, and she has helped us tremendously in the past too. Overall, we highly recommend Dr. Walker and his office.

This office has the best staff! And Dr. Shreya Shivathirthan is my favorite doctor! I have been going to her for over seven years and she is the best! When I have something wrong she takes me seriously and takes great care of me! Her nurse Nick is great too! Her medical assistants are awesome too! Everyone is very nice at the desk. It's a great place to go when your not feeling your best. Dr Shreya is a very smart doctor! She really knows her stuff! I highly recommend her!

Just changed doctors to come to these guys. They are far superior to where I've been going. I'm sorry about the drug-seeking other guy who wrote the last review - it's totally not fair. Objectively, their reception area is really top-notch, nurses are engaged and professional, they actually have a human being answer every phone call, and messages are returned promptly as promised. I left a practice that knew nothing about customer service. These guys know. They are great!

I too am a huge fan of Dr Walker and if he decides to leave this practice I will follow him where ever he decides to practice. A doctor you can trust to listen and actually help you is very hard to find! That says it all about Dr Walker..he is the best doctor I have ever used!!

Dr. Simanovsky is THE BEST doctor in the city. He's not one to check out every minor thing, which we appreciate. He treats you and gets you out the door fast, again, appreciated. And he's funny.. always a plus.

Dr. Thompson is a caring physician who spends as much time with his patients as needed, and follows up as quickly as he can. I'm lucky to have found him.

A little pricey when my consult was billed for $290 an hour and it was not a whole hour. Bedside manor was lacking too.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
